New Cement Screeding Rule :

****Attention BTO flat Home owners / buyers ****

Come 1 December 2014, if you are renovating and having floor
replacements of your new BTO flats from HDB, you will not be
surprised it is going to be more expensive.

Housing Development Board (HDB) had imposed a new rule that
will take effect in December 2014 that contractors have to use pre-
packed screed for floor replacements, be it for wet or dry areas of
bathrooms, rooms, kitchen and the living room. The current
process is done with sand, with a mixture of sand and water, but
HDB has mentioned that the required new standard is made with
cement and sharp sand reduces wastage and is more eco-
friendly, making sure of a greener (and cleaner) environment.

Sharp sands have lower clay content and a gritty texture. It is
usually used in situations and constructions which requires
stronger hold and has a more jagged edge (not round like beach
sand) and usually silver to maroon colour. According to ID
contractors and owners, when implemented, this will cost nearly 3
grand, which includes both toilets and kitchen’s floors only.

While these may all sound good, it seems that the pre-packed
screed is higher in cost, and therefore these costs will be incurred
by the home owners, if you want to rework your HDB, that is.

It is said that this screed gives a more consistent quality than
usual DIY mixed cement and sand. Which some contractors/I.Ds
may relinquish some control over their own preferred way of
mixing. An Assistant Professor from NTU explained.
